After moving to Queens from Syracuse, I was a bit apprehensive about finding a caring, compassionate vet for my cocker spaniel. We had an enexpected emergency with our cat a few months after moving, and even though our cat had passed, the compassion we received from the staff there was unforgetable. We fell upon this hospital by chance, as it was the closest place for us to go in an emergency, but we have been coming back with our cocker spaniel ever since. We have since adopted a senior pooch and there is no other facility I trust more with his care. Excellent doctors, very easy to get an appointment, and reasonable prices. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

The staff was very friendly and the vets seemed to know what they were talking about. Unfortunatley the entire time I was there I didn't feel they were focusing on my kitty as much as how much $$ they could get out of me...

They kept trying to sell me various services despite my repeated assertion that the shelter I adopted from provided free spaying and rabies shots. In the end I shelled out $28 for a "fecal matter sample bottle" so they could test my kitty's stool.

The only reason I visited this office was because I couldn't get an appointment with my usual vet and I wanted to get my new kitten checked out as soon as possible after adopting her.

I won't be returning here in the future, however.

They need a reality check in this place, first off most of the receptionists are unpolite and rude they need to get receptionists who are going to make you feel welcomed once walking into the waiting area. The waiting area is not pet welcoming needs some renovations to make it look more like a vet's office. I got the feeling this place only cares about the money. I was not satisfied at all with my visit there.

I have used this vet once before but I would not go again. Although there are some friendly people the staff in the reception area are very rude. The service by the Vet was around par with what I have seen before in Queens. I would recommend you looking elsewhere.

They treat our furry friends with respect and kindness. I would recommend anyone to go there. The prices are pretty good as well. I myself have never had a bad experience as a client and heard no other bad remarks from the people I know who go there.

While I cannot comment on their regular practices, we unexpectedly had to put our pet to sleep this week-end and I was extremely impressed by the vet's compassion during this very sad time. I am very grateful for the sensitivity of the vet we saw and her assistant.

(My only issue was that I had to wait awhile for a staff person to be free to escort me to upstairs bathroom.)

True, the wait can be long. I have never been treated rudely by either the staff or the vets. I've been there alot lately because my elderly mini-poodle is having problems w/seizures and had to go on pheno-barb. Dr. Herstein is fantastic. He is working w/my dog and me. He always calls me back no matter when I call. The assistants are so gentle w/Shadow. I'm in the room when Shadow is getting examined. Never have my dogs been mistreated. The doctors and staff (except for the groomer - if you don't groom your pets w/her, she can be rude) have always been very caring w/my pets.

I have switched vets...and bring my cat to see Dr. Valdez, and am glad I left my original vet clinic. I get all my questions answered, and I feel there is a genuine concern for my pet from Dr. Valdez. His staff is also very efficient and courteous. The long wait on Saturday is well worth the quality of care my cat receives, and I feel at ease knowing the doctors there truly love animals and give honest feedback and advice.

I have been bringing all of my pets here for years. Even after I left the neighborhood I still drive out of my way to come here. Dr Halpern and Dr Valdez have given all of my pets the care they needed. I have never had a problem getting them an appointment in an emergency. From my 200 lb Rotti to his best friend my 2lb Guinea pig. I have sent many referrals their way. And if the girls behind the desk are rude it's most likely because they have spent the day dealing with nasty clients. Never had an issue with them.

I've been going to lefferts with my pets for over 5 years and have never experienced any kind of unprofessional behavior or sensed any hostility from their staff.On the contrary the employees have gone to extreme measures to make me and my baby feel comfortable.The doctors seem to be awfully knowledgeable and obviously concerned about their patients,but most importantly the front desk which has managed to acquired the most criticism has on the other hand treated me with the up most respect...sweet girls and at some crucial moments extremely funny!

I brought my cat in for a check up and was pretty happy with their service. The cost was on par with any other vet Ive been to and they very were quick - less than half and hours wait. There was nothing particularly special about their service but I will probably go back in the future whenever I need their service because it is located close by to my home and its convient.

I have been to this clinic before with my cat and I had a long wait. They couldn't give me a soon appointment and were not very well mannered. The office is small and there is no parking. I am glad I was able to find a great vet after this visit.
